I wasn’t going to touch on this story, until I knew that mainstream press confirmed it (ie, newspaper sites).
We all know what has happened now and Rihanna has been confirmed as the victim. I was really shocked to hear this story. It is very sad to think that he would attack his own girlfriend. No woman or man should ever have to be subjected to domestic violence, famous or not. The fact that both Rihanna & Chris are famous means that the whole idea of domestic violence is elevated even more.
I don’t really like the idea of commenting on other people’s relationships because I am not in their lives at all. None of us know who they are, as such. But what I can comment on is their careers, because their careers are public.
- Rihanna & Chris Brown toured together last year, going to New Zealand & Australia.
- Chris Brown co-write Disturbia
- Rihanna & Chris sang together on Bad Girl, a song for the Confessions of a Shopaholic soundtrack.
And those are just three pieces of career trivia. Clearly, they were working well together in a professional sense. Why on earth did this happen? I just do not understand. All relationships have issues, and I can not imagine what being a 20 or 19 year old person in the spotlight must be like but to me, just my view, this is clearly to do with being incapable on CB part of dealing with fame and ego.
Any man who can attack a woman has issues with ego and self-importance. It is deluded to think that you somehow have the right to touch someone else’s body physically.
Rihanna was not at fault to be attacked by her boyfriend.
She is the victim, not Chris or his career (or lack there of, because quite frankly, everyone businesses about Rihanna and how she looks). I hope she, like any victim of domestic violence, is safe and sound and naturally, her family *should* intervene. Hollywood, money or no money, no one deserves to be hit by someone s/he loves.
If we are talking careers, CB’s image is deeply hurt by this. And he needs to issue an apology very quickly. I am sure they will break up but either way, Rihanna’s career will be helped by this, believe it or not.
